eyelid irritation

I would like to know if anyone can answer my question. I have been having issues with one eyelid swelling very red with itching and burning. I haven't worn makeup in over 2 weeks. I was told that washing my eyelids with a antibacterial soap would help, so I did that last night. I woke this morning worse than ever. I washed with just plain water and applied some triple antibiotic ointment. It feels better but is still swollen and red. I have had this issue before. I am at my wits end.
Please help. I live alone and don't have money for a doctor visit at this time.

Try Ocusoft lid scrubs. You really should see an ophthalmologist.
